LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Quick, Painless, Effective

Laser hair removal is a medical treatment that uses a focused beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. During LHR, a laser throws a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is transformed to heat, which destroys the sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that makes hairs. This damage stops or delays future hair growth. Laser hair removal treatments are available for areas of your body including the face, chin, leg, back, underarm, and bikini line. However, it's possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area, except the eyelid or surroundings. Laser hair removal is a painless, permanent solution to remove unwanted hair on your body. No more weekly waxing and no more  shaving at home! This treatment is for both men and women. The number of sessions required are 8-10.

Everything Thing You Need to Know

Benefits

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Benefits of laser hair removal include:
 
Precision
Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
 
Speed 
Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
 
Predictability
Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.

Procedure

Pre Procedure

If you are planning to undergo a laser hair removal procedure, then you should avoid the following: 

  • Plucking

  • Waxing 

  • Electrolysis 

  • Sun exposure

  • Avoiding blood-thinning medications

  • Shaving is okay to do a day before laser treatment. 

You should avoid other hair removal activities for at least 6 weeks before the treatment as these activities may remove the hair roots temporarily.

Procedure

  • Prior to the procedure, your hair will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. 

  • The dermatologist will adjust the laser equipment according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair as well as your skin color.

  • You and your technician will need to wear goggles for eye protection. 

  • You also have to apply a cold gel to help the laser light penetrate the skin.

  • Then, the technician will test a small area on the skin with a pulse of light. This to ensure that the settings are correct & optimum. 

  • Once the procedure is complete, you will need ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, and cold water to ease any discomfort. 

  • Your next treatment session can be done four to six weeks later. 

  • Your treatment will continue until the hair stops growing.

Post Procedure Care

  • Avoid sun exposure for six weeks after the procedure. This is because sun exposure can make laser hair removal less effective. 

  • Cool compresses and moisturizers may help to control the sunburn. 

  • You can wear makeup the next day unless your face has blisters from the procedure. 

  • Wear sunscreen before 20 minutes every time you go out. This will help prevent any temporary changes in the color of the treated skin.

  • Most people undergo several treatment sessions over a span of 2-3 months. Usually, they require anywhere between four and six sessions. In fact, every treatment will need a time gap of six weeks each. This means that the full treatment cycle can take up to nine months.
